re: The Evolution Of My Industry

Shaun,

I need to pick your brain. I have been webcasting since 2006. It looks like you and I both do the same thing. I broadcast multi-cam video feeds and PowerPoint out of corporate meetings to who ever the client wants to view it. I have owned a Sony Anycast since 2002. It is a very versatile switcher but it is not the encoder they claimed it was (story for a different thread). Anyway, what forum should we post in for webcasting. I will get a thread started. Right now, there are threads scattered around but not much info. Lets go for it.

Steve

re: The Evolution Of My Industry

Mr. Diggs...thank you for a wonderful journey through your experiences in the world of video capture.

The humor wasn't lost. I recognized myself in your descriptions of 'factions' and remember telling one of the 'Secrets' at a Workshop, "The only advantage I have at this point in my life (I'll be 60 in August) is a little more disposable income". Yes, I'm one of those. : )

I also come from the world of 'stills' and like you, have used those ancient cameras with no batteries in them. It's funny when I'm asked by young people, "How did you know what shutter speed and f/Stop to use?" My usual answer is to just point to my head - I didn't have the heart to tell them about handheld light meters. TMI!

Thanks,

J.

re: The Evolution Of My Industry

Thanks Steve for the article, its a great read.
Being a similar age but from a slightly different starting point (shooting 16mm film for local news), I could truly relate. Felt as though you had hacked my foggy brain and made sense of some of the random thoughts!
I dont know how you did it but your humor still managed to show respect for all camps, well done.
Also appreciated the way you highlighted the importance of this forum and the generous contributions from those with experience who are willing to share. If it wasn't for this place, I would be too far behind the industry to earn a living (must update my Z1 sometime:-) )

re: The Evolution Of My Industry

I wanted to say thank you to everyone for the positive comments. I had some fun with this. I am glad to see that as an industry and a community some of us can laugh as ourselves.

Here is the weird part for me....That I have reached a point in my life where I can play the old guy! I am not that old, and I am still here plugging away....just a regular video guy.

Kind Regards,

Steve

Great read Steven!

Brings back memories of film school, about '98, where this...
The Canon XL1 Watchdog
...was an ocean of knowledge in a world populated by geocities webrings
